    Mayor blackout in nyc, detroit, Boston, Toronto, Cleveland- anyone have any info? There is info that a power plant is on fire, from NYTimes: Power Outages Reported Along East Coast; North to Toronto, South to Maryland and West to Cleveland and Detroit More (4:32 PM ET)

    Thousands are trapped in elevators and subways....

    Default Airports have been affected...

    No, currently the news reports say that the exact cause is not known. The fire is in a NYC plant. They say the entire province of Ontario is out. I personally suspect the system was overtaxed because of all the hot weather....

    IMPORTANT NOTE TO DR1ers TRAVELING TO, FROM OR THROUGH NYC:
    News reports say that JFK, LaGuardia & Newark are all experiencing significant delays because of the outages. Call the airline!

    Default I just heard

    That it has to do with a mechanical failure in the Niagra Con-Edison facility. You should see the people in New Yourk, like ants scurrying all over the place...

    And they aren't used to it...Except the folks up on 181 and Broadway..hehehe

    I would think so, GG, since you are not dependent on subways, Metro North, LIRR or Amtrak....
